We went there with three families. We did not expect it to have so much to do. The bear show was the highlight. Worth the admission

We go here every year, I've been coming here since I was a child, We both loved the train ride and watch out for the Wolf man during your train travels. New here was the rock wall, for both of us, had to get in some climbing exercise when we were on vacation. The water bumper boats were fun and... More

I visited the gift shop and it had lots of stuff to peruse through, but the main attraction for me was the bears lolling around on the (fenced-in) platform. One bear was playing with a beach ball, and it was a kick to watch him.

By far the best attraction is the train ride. It's a must see! The bears are also fun and amusing. It is quite small and can be done in half a day. I feel as though once you have been, you don't have to go again for a few years.

We only went to the Trading Post but it looked like a great place if you had kids. Very entertaining and could spend the day there.

Apart from the depressing bear this is really a tourist trap with a lot of high priced items that weren't that unique.

A great half day excursion. We rode the train and enjoyed The Wolfman and his great sense of humor! Even had a chance to ride a Segway for the first time. The bear show was the highlight of the visit!

We have taken our grandchildren here several times. Each time gets better and better. They truly had a wonderful visit! It is a great place for a full day of fun and laughter. Can't get better than this. The train ride, the bears, water boats are so much fun, and lets not forget the wonderful owners and the staff. Best... More
